Touratech improves stock crash bars for R 1200 GSA-WC

The factory BMW crash bars for the Water-Cooled R1200GS Adventure lack critical rear bracing. This design leaves the motorcycle’s magnesium valve cover vulnerable to damage from contact with the ground.


In a recent test done by Cycle World the stock crash bar on the R 1200 GS Adventure flexed into the cylinder head and punched a hole in the valve cover, when the rider took a hard fall. (See Cycle World, January 2015).

Touratech has addressed this problem by engineering the Factory Crash Bar Reinforcement Kit for the Water-Cooled R1200GS Adventure. This is a simple fix that can eliminate a critical failure. These reinforcement bars brace the BMW factory crash bars directly to the water-boxer’s frame and they instantly increase the protection of the bike and give the rider peace of mind wherever their adventure takes them.


The Touratech Crash Bar Reinforcement Brace is made of strong, 25mm electro-polished stainless steel tubing and is a perfect match for the stock bars. Touratech has produced a video that shows how quick and easy installation is!
